http://slate.com/Default.aspx?id=2109615&

Winamp is dead. Shoutcast too i guess. but has anybody tried WASTE? i have a use for that i think.

Slash dot has interesting thread on Nullsoft. holdouts claiming they’re still alive. whatever. but some nice links in the thread. including these

Quintessential player - http://www.quinnware.com/
Zinf Audio Player - http://www.zinf.org/

looks about ready for some ID input. but keep the crucifix!

Wow…that is an end of an era. Winamp is dead…long live iTunes?

Thinking of shareware/freeware, I was surprised that Mozilla’s launch of Firefox was reasonably well publicized last week…although who knows how many people will download another browser when I-Exploiter comes with all Windows releases.

The CrusFX is a very exciting product…it reminds me of images of home built Cartivisions I looked up on the net last week, and other early computers…good to see home technology innovation lives on.
